, therefore, that will lead us in terms of price action over the next five days. bob pisani? >> if you look at the interday, we were positive on the day earlier on. we dropped in the middle of the day and some people are attributing this to concerns that the house leadership did not issue the 48 hour call for the whole house to come back into session and vote on a proposed plan even though there isn't one out there, some are interpreting this to mean there will be no deal certainly going into the weekend. of course, the time period on which we can do something now gets smaller and smaller. let me show you a couple sectors here. we talked about this mastercard report on sales only up 0.7%. luxury retailers getting hit hard. can i just point out that none of these luxury retailers have done very well this year. tiffany, coach, ralph lauren are negative on the year and have been even before today's report. michael kors is the standout in luxury. remember they went public about a year ago. that's had a great run, up about 60% this year. but that's the standout in retail. can i also point out th
and a hat for 38 bucks. >> add a cup of coffee and a hot dog. >> while we use the word trousers, bob pisani is here watching what's good morning, bob. >> happy monday, everybody. did you notice the market. nice rally here. again, the market is demonstrated that it believes a deal on the fiscal cliff is coming. i know. i didn't hear it over the weekend. headline risk was all anybody wanted to talk about on friday. if anybody says that a deal is not happening or it's going nowhere, we could wake up down 15 points on the s&p on monday. guess what? boehner said the deal is going nowhere. now, when i call the bulls on this, they say, bob, they didn't say a deal was off. they just said so far the negotiations are going nowhere. the market still believes that a deal is coming and it's going to be a substantive deal. instead and by the way, geithner insisted on tax rates issues. looks like there may be something happening eventually. we didn't fall apart on the whole thing. even futures weren't down overnight. instead we rally on a little bit overnight on the greek deal and for those that don't kno
, bob doll will be giving us his lineup for stocks. that's coming up at 7:00 a.m. eastern time. at 8:00 eastern, a cnbc exclusive. david tepper, one of the world's top performing hedge fund managers will join us to give us some of his wisdom in a kaerc t can't-miss interview. a lot to talk about with him. in the meantime, why don't we get to some of today's top stories. we could see some movement in the fiscal cliff negotiations. house speaker boehner offering to raise the top tax rates on those making over $1 million a year as well as other measures amounting to $1 trillion in new revenue. that's in exchange for an equal amount in spending cuts. the white house has not yet accepted the proposal. >>> also, apple says it has sold more than 2 million in iphone 5s in china just over the last three days. that's the best ever debut for the iphone line in china. apple is china's second biggest market, although it did lose a lot of market share while they were waiting for that i5 to come out. and citi research has downgraded apple from a hold to a buy. you can see there just below $500. >>
telling us that this is not a balanced plan. they don't like it yet. and then earlier today, senator bob corker was on cnbc kind of pooh-poohing the whole thing. take a listen. >> we're not close to a deal. and i've been trying for three weeks, i've been standing on my head doing cartwheels to try to pivot toward entitlement reform. this is not a deal here. >> so carl, what's going on right now on capitol hill is that speaker boehner is meeting with his republican conference colleagues behind closed doors. we expect that at the top of the next hour, he's going to come out and talk before cameras. we'll get some reaction from his colleagues as well, what they think of this proposal and where they think this negotiation needs to go. but clearly, negotiations are ongoing, and the president and the speaker are coming closer together, whether or not that makes everybody happy or enough people happy to get a deal still remains to be seen, carl. >> eamon, this is a tough one to read. had the biggest movement been in that -- in the line in the sand with regards to how much people need to make to
to serve. bob, these projections... they're... optimistic. productivity up, costs down, time to market reduced... those are good things. upstairs, they will see fantasy. not fantasy... logistics. ups came in, analyzed our supply chain, inventory systems... ups? ups. not fantasy? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. >> once again, our developing story tonight, no deal still on the fiscal cliff. president obama handing the matter over to the senate leaders and without any resolution, many people are scrambling to shore up their finances. hampton pearson has the fiscal cliff frenzy. hampton. >>? >> you got it, michelle. we're operating in an environment where, quote, uncertainty is the new normal. this is the equivalent of the last-minute christmas shopping to protect assets of going over the fiscal cliff, planners and wealth managers say it's been a banner year especially for estate planning and here's a couple of reason yes. there's a big change coming with the gift tax. right now there's a $5 million exempted and the tax rate is 35%. on midnight on new year's eve
't be modest, bob. you found a better way to pack a bowling ball. that was ups. and who called ups? you did, bob. i just asked a question. it takes a long time to pack a bowling ball. the last guy pitched more ball packers. but you... you consulted ups. you found a better way. that's logistics. that's margin. find out what else ups knows. i'll do that. you're on a roll. that's funny. i wasn't being funny, bob. i know. >>> for weeks everybody's talked about the looming fiscal cliff like it's all important, like nothing else matters. but you know what's really important, too? corporate earnings. and we've been getting some pretty swell corporate earnings for this week. take jbl. when other companies outsource their operations, they go to jabil. this is a company that has its fingers in a lot of different cookie jars. they reported last night and the numbers are fabulous. they had a 5 percent earnings increase. the stock rose 7.4%, made jabil one of the largest movers. that's why i'm glad to have here mr. main. it was the most bullish in this conference call that i've heard you in i'd say eigh
bob moffett t chairman of both companies, mmr, owns a stake in pxp, board seats. it's related. >> and yet, ackerson, did we get hold of him? he's always been very pro shareholder. this is the most anti-shareholder. unless you're a very large shareholder. >> isn't he cynical? >> these guys are different, moffett and our man in chesapeake. >> thank you. they approach the world a little different. >> is it different from you? you're fitzgerald. >> i don't want to say cavalier, but they like to take risks, that's how they built their fortune in the first police, they all take risks. >> i thought if you bought freeport, you were trying to play the grassberg, big copper, the china thing, i didn't know i was getting involved in a high stakes poker match. >> yes. which is why you're selling. >> let's get to bob pisani who's on the floor watch what's moving. >> moffett wants the cash flow from freeport who helped finance the drilling for mcmoran drilling. why did they have to spend 70% premium to buy these things? if i wanted to buy them, i could have bought them a lot cheaper, i wante
, bob, it's a fantasy. all of this goldilocks stuff is a fantasy. you cannot get strong growth with rising taxes and lower spending. that's not going to happen. you cannot have unlimited stimulus that is not going to cause inflation. that's just a fantasy. so there's a real fight going on. none the less, have you noticed, gold being sold, buying the euro, it seems a weird trade going on here affecting the markets. this was going on yesterday as well. this may have to do with the yen. the yen is hitting new lows against the dollar. it's hitting new lows against the euro. have you seen what's going on with the japanese elections? the new prime minister told the bank of japan we want more stimulus. guess who's meeting thursday? the bank of japan. japan's exports fall for the sixth straight month. you are going to see the bank of japan on thursday announce new stimulus measures. you're going to see efforts to weaken the yen. it's going to get even weaker. that is the old yen carry trade. that may be where some of this money is coming from to do the odd little trades that seem to be
?margin. don't be modest, bob. you found a better way to pack a bowling ball. that was ups. and who called ups? you did, bob. i just asked a question. it takes a long time to pack a bowling ball. the last guy pitched more ball packers. but you... you consulted ups. you found a better way. that's logistics. that's margin. find out what else ups knows. i'll do that. you're on a roll. that's funny. i wasn't being funny, bob. i know. to the best vacation sp(all) the gulf! it doesn't matter which of our great states folks visit. mississippi, alabama, louisiana or florida, they're gonna love it. shaul, your alabama hospitality is incredible. thanks, karen. love your mississippi outdoors. i vote for your florida beaches, dawn. bill, this louisiana seafood is delicious. we're having such a great year on the gulf, we've decided to put aside our rivalry. now is the perfect time to visit anyone of our states. the beaches and waters couldn't be more beautiful. take a boat ride, go fishing or just lay in the sun. we've got coastline to explore and wildlife to photograph. and there's world class dining with
boehner doesn't seem to have the power and grover does. >> the point, again, bob corker's pledge is not to me, it is to the voters of tennessee, that's the argument he's made again and again. if he wants to have a different conversation with the voters, that's his choice. >> why is corker the coolest man on earth? who does he play golf with? peyton manning. >> really? >> he's giving me all the big -- the minimum tax. i said, what are you up to this weekend? he said, i played golf with peyton manning. i said, are you kidding me? that seems to be more important to you than the fiscal cliff. >> 11-3? >> they still need home field advantage. >> they're competing for a first round play-off. what peyton has done is just amazing. steve liesman's exclusive with lacquer. one more look at futures this morning. we'll cover what 10% on squawk earlier today. and a lot more when "squawk on the street" comes right back.

children to sweat shop work day? >> anyway, let's check with bob pisani with more on what's moving today. >> let's talk about what the trading day's going to look like. that was the main topic of conversation overnight and through this morning. i would note, folks, i know this is not a good open, but we are well above where we were at the close last friday. so we were 1413 last friday at the close, 1427 now. i think on the s&p 500. okay. it's a bad day, a down day, but we're still actually above where we were at the close last year. we're up for the week on the s&p 500. i think the problem now is going to be talking about what the rest of the day's going to look like. my sense talking to everybody is, they'll try to sell at most of the rallies that go on, just to protect themselves for what we've been seeing here. that's going to be a problem. because i know you're hopeful maybe we'll get a move up toward the close. i think selling into the rallies is going to be a general problem. i specifically was talking to people about that today. we've been rallying. the biggest problem that we hav
, bob. we did. got it. >>> if you notice unusual trades happening today, it might be because of those gentlemen. >> and ladies. >> they'll ring the opening bell. >> we'll tell you more about that in a couple of minutes. in the meantime -- >> they are gentlemen. >> in the meantime, the president is in hawaii on vacation. washington lawmakers are on holiday. there's still no deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. the deadline is a week away. hampton pearson is in washington on the stalemate. >> as early as the day after christmas, congress and the white house will have to start to deal with what president obama called the real consequences of going over that fiscal cliff. >> nobody can get 100% of what they want. and this is not simply a contest between parties in terms of who looks good and who doesn't. there are real world consequences to what we do here. >> a short-term deal won't just focus on tax rates. the end of the payroll tax cut and the impact of the hike in the minimum tax on january 1st. over the weekend, we did hear from some republican moderates who say it may in fact be time to
to have the day off today. our guest host today is bob broska. house speaker john boehner urging the senate to come up with a passable fiscal cliff solution. he's promising to at least consider any bill that the upper chamber produces. senate majority leader harry reid now expected to base any legislation on a bill passed earlier this year to continue tax breaks for households will incomes below $250,000. a senate bill would likely contain an extension of expiring unemployment benefits. and the other big news of the morning, treasury secretary tim geithner unveiling a plan to buy time under the debt ceiling. in a letter to congress, geithner saying that treasury is going to begin taking steps this week to delay hitting the government's 16$16.4 trillion borrowing limit. treasury will take several measures to save that next year to keep the government from reaching the limit for about two months. but geithner warns it is harder to predict how long the delay will last because of all of this ongoing fiscal cliff negotiations making it harder to forecast what revenue and tax spending
, they're giving her all they've got, and just like spock, they want you to live long and prosper. bob in florida, bob? >> caller: hey, big boo-yah to you, cramer. >> right back at ya. >> caller: first thing i want to do is thank you quick for all you do to demystify the market for people. >> that's my goal. thank you. >> caller: i'm guessing i'm not the only senior citizen living on social security that depends on a portfolio of dividend stocks as a supplement. i'd like to get your take on the future of the income stream that took me so long to create. with one stock in particular, windstream. >> i'm worried about windstream. and i read a lot of the analyst reports and they say, listen, you should be worried. when i have everyone telling me to be worried, i'm not someone who whistles past the graveyard. i say ain't worth it. >> sell, sell, sell. >> john in new york, please, john? >> caller: hey, how you doing, jim? i was wondering how you feel about nokia since they signed on to china mobile. >> everyone's all of a sudden excited about nokia. it's on a run. i understand a $3 stock you
toss it to bob. bank of america continues its tear up 1.75% new 52-week high in today's session of 1064. on our radar this morning. let's send it over to bob with more on what's moving. >> happy friday. what a week. futures popped ten points on the jobs report even though october was revised downward rather notably. a good open. materials, techs, financials leading the way. i wish i could be more optimistic on the fiscal cliff. a gloomy commentary this morning. expectations are getting narrow. grand bargains are out and the idea of maybe the fallback position is pass a simple tax bill like the one the senate had. the simple bill here. you have tax cuts for middle class but not for people over 250,000. you have dividends and capital gains going to 23.8%. that's the senate bill. and that's it. you leave out estate tax and leave out payroll tax cut and unemployment extension and you leave that out. no delay in the sequestration. this is pretty thin gruel. this is what's tossed about and talked about today overall. is that enough to satisfy the markets? remember, the two requirements, got t
. no reason given. they have hired them, which is another, hmm, wonder what they're up to kind of move. bob pisani is on the floor with what's moving today. >> we're up 24 points in the dow. and a lot of people think a grand bargain is impossible at this point. but president obama coming back from vacation in hawaii. that's an indication that some kind of deal -- however small -- is definitely coming. i want to point out, and i know you've been negative on this mastercard data on retail sales, and everybody thinks it's going to be a mess for the holiday season. i want to point out that the stocks are not acting that way. that this is a disaster for the season. the s&p retail index hit an historic high on december 3rd. historic high. since then, it has only been down about 3%. these stocks are not acting like there's a disaster. i can give you several reasons why they're not down so far. number one, we are going to see eps growth in the fourth quarter from some of them because of the extra week that there is. number two, we've had much lower cotton costs this year. their overall costs are lo

to go home and watch kenny anderson and bob thumpy. >> and chris collinsworth. my dad had season tickets and that's who we used to see, bob trumpy and kenny anderson. great cook. remember him from university of cincinnati. it will be thin trading. what happens this week? it's all dependent on i guess now a small deal. do you feel better that it's in the hands of the senate, ira sfp. >> oh, yeah. i feel great. we're at the point, i think people realize, well, if we go over, they're going to have now a resolution, if it's in mid january, fine, it's in mid january. there are many other things going on in this world. they will come to some type of agreement. and if they want to drive it over the cliff, okay, but then it's going to put the spending right -- that's not necessarily a bad thing. ken langone was not talking about the same thing last week. now spending will come front and center. we've got something that we've delayed for quite a while. it seems there's an agreement that they have to raise some revenue, but they're going to have to attack the spending at some point. if this gets t
thompson. she's in for bob this morning. >> the dow is down 54 points. now just down about 34. the market is expected to move in tandem with any headlines across from washington. right now, we don't have the deal, not really a problem for the markets. of course, that could change as we head toward the close and the uncertainty builds. quick check of the european boards today. most of them were closed. those who did trade, i should say, were only traded a half day. the session there was mixed. the concerns over there continue to be will the u.s. go over the fiscal cliff. that kept pressure on some of the indices there. we're keeping watch on the bank stocks right now. we've seen a dourn-around in those there. futures popped earlier half an hour before the open. they have opened broadly to the down side in today's session. you guys were talking about it earlier, another positive reading on the pmi out of china. that seems to be lending some support to the material stocks in today's session, as you take a look at the shanghai composite, which is closing at a six-month high, or closed the new
underperformed. >> and you, as well, bob. thank you so much. >>> fiscal cliff concerns slamming stocks through the day with just ten days remaining to make a deal and avoid tax increases and springent spending cuts. house speaker john boehner says talks will continue. republicans said they would oppose it if it came to a vote. that includes our next guest, congressman mick mulvaney, republican from south carolina joins me now from capitol hill. sir, good to have you on the program. thanks for joining us. >> thank you very much for having me. >> if a deal is not struck by december 31st. taxes will go up on everybody. would you rather go over the cliff than go over the cliff? >> honestly, i don't think the two things are linked. if we had voted for plan b last night, no one is able to convince me it would have worked. the president said he would veto it. i don't know why we don't take those folks at their word. you think you would have seen a different outcome last night if the senate had approved what we were looking at. we were facing a symbolic vote that is more than likely to get thrown in t
're so worried about -- >> that's because they want to make money. it's like what bob pisani said. this is just what the traders wanted. okay i'm done, you go. >> let me quiz for you for a second. if they were so concerned about this imbalance, which ostensibly is about the inability of the u.s. government to pay its bills, why aren't they selling the very paper they appear to be buying with abandon? >> because they would like to continue to contribute tax revenues to the ever-growing deficit and money. >> need for employee -- >> but agreement to making money are two different things. >> talk to the guys behind you and find out if they so think the u.s. is -- >> -- exchange guys. these are foreign exchange guys. >> get into the other pit there. go take a walk and come back. i don't get it. if they so think we're out of whack why aren't they selling? >> come over here anthony. all right. hold on. i'll translate. give me the question. >> here's the question. >> steve liesman has a question. >> if the u.s. fiscal situation is so out of balance, if the country is so bankrupt, why isn'
's check with mary thompson, on the floor in for bob pisani today. >> weakness across the board. weakness in the nasdaq, down about 20 points. the dow lost in early trade. a little more modest in the s&p, down 4.25%. traders saying the fiscal cliff headlines will continue to dictate trading. and here there was a little reaction in the futures market ahead of today's opening bell on the data and the better than expected production numbers. overseas, last night we did have some more bad news out of japan with business sentiment there weakening. as melissa was mentioning earlier, positive news on the manufacturing front in china. that's giving a lift, as she pointed out, to a number of mining stocks. while it's also giving a lift to energy, or to oil prices this morning, i should point out, some of the big name oil companies were a little bit lower in early trading, again, those being exxon as well as chevron. the traders said the bid in the market remains strong despite concerns about the fiscal cliff in large part because the investors remain positive going into 2013. this is the markets r
